How I sold 5 Million ebooks in 5 months is a vital resource for authors wishing to promote themselves. After initially reading the book, the content seemed to take broad strokes at promotional solutions, but that was deceiving. When going back through his examples and explanations, I definitely found gems of wisdom – they can be subtle…but they are there.
As a “How to” book, the content moves more quickly than other books of its kind, and like Locke’s fiction, gets straight to the point. I will not bullet point all of Locke’s secrets in this review, as that is for the reader to discover after his purchase. But there are two specific items I wish to share about the book.
1) Read his examples. And when finished…read them again.
2) The underlying theme about social networking is the importance of reciprocity. John Locke stresses this on many occasions. And unlike many “How to” books, his message is done with a sincerity that most authors lack. Locke explains in detail the how helping one another is the foundation of success.
This book should be required reading for every author – whether self-published, small press, or mainstream.
